156 Veloce

New to Alfa's

A quick hi to everyone.

As someone who has owned a VW Golf GTI of one sort or another since 1990 I've finally kicked the habit

I got my first Alfa in September - a 156 Veloce Sport. Absolutely love it. Gives me a grin every time I open the front door and see it on the drive and an even bigger grin every time I drive it..

Welcome Gringo!!

The Alfa grin is a permanent demented facial condition and it will never go away.

(Pasi - Surely nobody could possibly be more evil than Mr.Orange??)

AM.

Re: New to Alfa's

Hello Gringo

Like you, I'm on my first Alfa and haven't stopped grinning since - seems to be like that with everyone who owns an Alfa

(BTW I've found this is a great forum with loads of info and stuff going on)

Re: New to Alfa's

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

No relation to Mr Orange. The avatar is "Ginger" - the logo from many years ago for Orange Mountain Bikes - cycling is my other passion.

Couple more pics here if you are interested. Not particularly arty just some I took a couple days after I bought it.

Re: New to Alfa's

welcome aboard gringo, very nice 156 very nearly got those rims on mine but ended up going for the TI's instead, but it was a close call like you i'm on my first alfa and so far the grin is permanent...

Re: New to Alfa's

AL- those TI rims look very nice. The ones on mine come as standard on the "Sport"

Fraser - the colour is Stromboli Grey. I imagine that 2.4 of yours flies. Mine is the 1.9 JTD M-Jet 16v. Very impressed with it, so much smoother, quieter (and quicker) than the Golf TDI 130 I traded in
